I just learned that I can get some advance copies of my new book, The Screech Owl Companion, in time for the Meadowlands Birding Festival at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst on Sunday, Oct. 1. I wrote the book with Scott Weston of Massachusetts. Here's the writeup:
Meadowlands Birding Festival Update!
Sneak Preview of Jim Wright’s New Screech Owl Book -2pm Auditorium
Screech owls are the owl most likely to nest in a suburban backyard, but few people know how to entice them to set up residence–or how to thwart those pesky squirrel interlopers. Nature writer Jim Wright, a long-time friend of Bergen County Audubon Society will talk all about his brand-new book from Timber Press, The Screech Owl Companion – to be published on October 17.
Jim thinks the photos alone are worth the price of this entertaining compendium, but see for yourself. Jim will be happy to sign and inscribe advance copies after this event, his first-ever talk about this book.
Lillian Stokes, coauthor of The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America, says: “Astounding, thorough, wide-ranging, and well done, this book will take you into the world of the beloved Screech Owl. It delivers everything you could want or need to welcome these appealing, diminutive, feathery, fierce creatures as your neighbors.”
